    I have been very please with the 4-6-2 Pacific and 2-8-2 Mikado from BLI. Both pull 15-20 cars easily depending on the weight of each car. I evidently got a bad NW2 from BLI. It didn't run very...

    Since I had a store credit with Train World, I ordered 4 BLI Norfolk and Western hoppers to go with the NS 2-6-0. I ended up putting the front coupler on the tender of the 2-6-0 so I could run it. I...

    Well I returned the BWL NW2 switcher since it ran erratic at slow speeds and made a grinding noice. I bought a brand new Model Power 2-6-0 Mogul with DCC and sound from eBay. I'm just waiting for the...

    An update.

    My BLI Pacific came in today. Man is it loud. Even after changing the sound levels to match my BLI Mikado (after adjusting) it is still louder. The Pacific runs just as good as the...

    HAHAHA At least the NW2 was used at the same time as the Pacific and Mikado steam engines so it won't look out of place like my GP40 does. The steamers might have to be relegated to the...
